Axl Rose Plays First Show With AC/DC, Pro-Shot Video Goes Online

(hennemusic) Axl Rose performed his very first show as the frontman of AC/DC in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday (May 7th), and videos, including pro-shot footage, from his debut have been posted online.

Rose fronted the Australian rockers on the opening night of the European leg of the 2016 Rock Or Bust tour in place of Brian Johnson, who stepped aside in March on the advice of doctors in order to prevent further damage to his hearing, which guitarist Angus Young revealed had been an issue from the start of the world tour last year.

AC/DC and Rose pounded through a 22-song show at Passeio Maritimo de Algés that featured most of the tour's standard setlist, with two new adds from 1978's "Powerage", including "Rock 'n' Roll Damnation" (first time since 2003) and "Riff Raff" (last performed in 1996).

As Rose continues to heal a broken left foot injured during Guns N' Roses' April 1 club gig at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, the singer was once again confined to chair at center stage after using a throne on loan from Foo Fighter Dave Grohl for his band's first series of reunion dates last month.

Axl's AC/DC rig is much smaller that the throne setup while still providing a place to rest his injured foot in its protective brace. Rose is on board for AC/DC's 12-date European spring tour and will rejoin the band sometime later this year for the to-be-rescheduled US Rock Or Bust dates. Check out the videos here.
